Midwinter's Family Day 2017

The Friends of South Brisbane Cemetery present their inaugural 'Midwinter's Family Day' at the cemetery on Sunday 18 June. This will be a wonderful opportunity for you to come and explore the cemetery with our historians, and then sit back and take in the quiet semi-sacred atmosphere of this beautiful heritage place. There will be food and coffee, book and cemetery info stalls, and some relaxing music.

Our guides will oversee special 'Symbol Hunts' for the kids, or you can explore on your own with our activity sheets.

Entry is free.

We will be there from 10am-3pm, and would love to see you there. Guests can also join our newly-incorporated community group and find out how they can help care for this special place.

PARKING: NO PARKING IN THE CEMETERY PLEASE. There is limited space for cars and we ask all Family Day guests to use public transport. This will ensure that any people visiting graves in the cemetery on that day will have easier access. There are bus and train stops very close by.
